Best when grown on a sturdy arbor or trellis.

Suggested Planting Requirements:  Squash and edible gourds need deep mounds of organic matter, rich soil, and heavy consistent watering. Mulching can help improve the moisture retention in your soil and allow for more time between watering.  On our farm, we use as much mulch as we can to try and keep moisture in the soil during our hot, dry summers. All squash and gourds are extremely frost-sensitive. If you have cold temperatures at the beginning of your growing season you can use plastic mulches to heat soils in early spring, and row covers to protect from frost at both ends of the growing cycle. Especially in short summer growing seasons. Avoid overhead watering to prevent powdery mildew. Any squash or gourd can be planted in 20” container if space is limited. Let squash spill over the container and into the garden area.

Growing Recommendations:  Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly once soils are at least 70°F. Row covers can be utilized for a pest barrier if you have issues with animals in your garden. To prevent foliage disease, do not overhead water. Water at the soil level. A side dressing of organic fertilizer is recommended. Harvest fruits often at the size of about 6-12″. Trim away dead or diseased leaves. If flowers fall off without fruit formation, ensure proper pollination.

Harvesting & Storage:  These gourds are most tender when harvested at 6-12″.
